Class 1  

Welcome to Class 1!


Have a look at the pictures on the slideshow of what we get up to! Information about what we are learning can be found under the slideshow.

In Class 1 we have 3 members of staff.  Miss Metcalf is our class teacher,
Miss Bell is our nursery assistant and Miss Byers is our trainee teaching assistant.

Mrs Richardson helps in our class on a Tuesday.
Miss Boyd  teaches us on a Wednesday afternoon.


Our topic for the Autumn term is 'All About Me'. As it is the start of a new year we thoroughly enjoy this topic getting to know all of our friends and learning all about each other. We are very excited about this topic.


During English we will be working on our formation of letters. We will also be listening to lots of fantastic stories and trying to retell these in order. We can often be found drawing pictures and then explaining to our teachers what the picture is. Our teachers try and encourage to write some words to go with the pictures.


During Maths we will be learning how to count to 10 and beyond. We will also be concentrating on forming our numbers accurately. We will do this by practicing them in the play dough, paint, sand and foam.


Carolyn comes in to teach Music to us every Tuesday during 'Music Makers'. We like to sing songs and learn about lots of different instruments. We will also be singing lots of dinosaur songs. 


During Phonics we will be split into groups. Miss Metcalf will be teaching the Reception phonics through a variety of active and non-active games. Miss Bell will be working with our Pre-School children (starting from January 2018) to help them learn the basic sounds. 


In Science  we will be learning all about the human body and trying to label different parts.


Our PE lessons this half term will focus on parachute games and basic moves. Please make sure you have your PE kit in school every day.


On a Wednesday afternoon Mrs Walsh teaches us French. We will be learning how to answer the register in French and learning the different colours.


During Computing we will be learning about how to use different types of technology particularly focussing on the use of Bee-Bots.


We are now using an online learning journal 'Tapestry'.  The teachers will add observations and pictures to children's learning journeys but if they have done something amazing that you wish to share you will be able to log in to you child's journal and upload it.  Please speak to Miss Metcalf if you have any questions or problems logging in to Tapestry.  


Keep your eyes peeled for more updates from Class 1 as we continue our adventure together.
